> Have a look at prueba2. The corner images are blackish but should be white. I would define
a corner in svg and somewhere in the pipeline the svg should be rendered with the right color
and exported as png.

I have not done any docs on this unfortunately

What you can do is to take a look at the krysalis-site and tigris-style skins that already
use them, and take a look at the names of the corner images. You can experiment with them
by simply calling the right filename in the browser.

They should be something like:


With the wildcards being:

  path to the xslt that creates the corner (in the common skin we have
                                            two ready)
  orientation top or bottom (t or b)
  orientation left or right (l or r)
  size (pixels)
  background color name as in the skin color profile
  the stroke color name as in the skin color profile
  the foreground color name as in the skin color profile

The pipeline that generates them is resources.xmap.

NOTE: the pngs have a problem due to the gamma setting being interpreted differently in browsers.
I minimized the difference, but maybe it's better if we use lossless jpeg instead in the future.

We need to have Forrest switch to use a totally CSS-based skin, which would feel similarly
to the current color scheme.
